iieighlxirhood ; though Polk county 'fruit men have gone more gener
ally into gooseberries than their neighbors across the river, on the
' Marion county side ; and somerof them will telT-yott that they have
better gooseberry land over thcre.j ; However that may be, it is all
tributary to Salem, and, as Mc Crawford says, more gooseberries must
be raised in order to keep the Salem manufacturing plants going.
. j . This shows him to be a loyal Salemite, even though he lives -out-,
' side the corporate limits, and in andther county.
Jesse Huber, the well known farmer and fruit grower and former
Ohio and Oregon newspaper man, says Marion county soil will raise
300 to 500 bushels of Oregon Champion gooseberries to the acre; in
other words, 12.000 to 23,000 pounds to the acre.
Think of that! ' '
He also points out that gooseberries at the beginning of the seasit
sold readily in the Portland market at 15 cents a pound, last year,
and did not get below 10 cents, or three pounds for 23 cents, at retail,
there. V ' - j '.;
Figure up 25,000 pounds by 15c, and you have, $3750.

. Or make it 12,000 twund.4 at 5 cents, and you have $G()0.
- ( Or make it 6000 pounds at 3 cents, and you have $180, or a net
profit of something like $150 an acre
Mr. Crawford is right in saying he sells his gooseberry acre each
year at a. high price for the land, in his net profit
J And still has the acre.
' i He has been raising 9000 pounds on the acre, as above stated ; and
e will increase his yield, no doubt, with better knowledge of goose
; L Mr, Hnber says its extreme hardiness is in favor of the goose
berry ; neither the buds nor the branches arc affected by freezing tern
' J. F. McKinley, a neighbor of Mr. ( raw Ford, is the man who
raised 16,000 pounds of gooseberries on one acre one year.
.Harry K. White, out on Koute 9, below Salem, on the Marion
county side of the river has been bothered with anthracnose and mil
dew', but he knows how to control these pests now, and he will raise
iuore gooseberries in the future.
Kj I J., Duncan, who lives out about five miles northeast of Salem,
has some splendid advice to. prospective -gooseberry growers and to
all fruit growers, for that matter. j

From the information .in hand, it may he confidently asserted
that this is the lMkt district in the world for the gooseberry grower.
And it is encouraging to all who an interested in this city and
this country to know that all the plants that can be had arc being put

Senate Adopts Resolution but
Some of Its Teeth Are
The state senate yesterday adopted
a senate Joint resolution to submit
to the people. at the proposed election
next May the question of restoring
capital punishment in Oregon, but as
adqpted the. resolution lacks the
strength that a minority of the sen
ate led by Senators Handler and
Thomas, hoped to have put Into it.
The resolution adopted Is a substi
tute for the original, and Instead of
an unqualified provision that treason
and first degree murder stu.be pun
ished by death it provides that a Jury
may. In Its discretion, recommend
life imprisonment, in which case that
shall be the form of punishment.
Senator Handler asserted that
while he was doubtful if he could
reconcile himself to vote for capital
punishment under any circumstances
he opposed the substituted resolution 1
for the reason that It placed the re
sponsibility of fixing the punishment
with the Jury, members of which may
be subject to prejudice and passion
because ot Individual opinions.
The afternoon wrangle on the ques
tion started over a motion lo recom
mit the resolution to the Judiciary.
This lost by a vote of 20 to A. The
resolution was then adopted with on
ly Smith of Josephine and Strayer
voting .against it. Smith declared
the resolution worthless In its amend
